Not sure what do do /not to do for next 2.5 weeks?
Ive got a 24 hour race ( hoping to get 100 miles) in two and a half weeks. Apart from a marathon this Saturday , exacty 2 weeks before the event I was thinking about just doing a few 5 milers. Am I backing off too much or does this sound about right ? Not really sure what to do . I havent run since last weekend when I did a 34/16M back to back with no problems and no stiffness next day.
You are backing off just right. It is critical to have good recovery time for a 100 miler. You might get away with more activity, but why risk it?
So.... running a marathon 2 weeks before a 100 miler is classed as tapering? Bloody hell!
I don't know whether to admire you or pity you!
Good luck... enjoy it
